Sam Hodge's spoonPhase project continues to impress with this new collection of sonic explorations of the troubled mind. His previous Webbed Hand release, "Songs for Psychos" was enthusiastically received by listeners, and "Messy Messy Messy" will definitely appeal to the same approving audience.
This album follows the trajectory of a messy life from birth, through highs and lows, and ultimately into a strange place. It's a story, the autobiography of a shattered soul. Many genres of electronic music meet in this album, and the vocal element is at times both dark and whimsical. This is a great production with a big sound.

Joys and Tragedies
Been waiting on this one, and got it the first day it was available! From the joys of "Birth", through childhood, having friends, finding love, to losing it all...little by little, until you slip away to that "Dark" place...may it be fighting your own demon, going insane, or even death. Messy Messy Messy covers it all, and covers it well. Well thought out and great job on staying on track. Superb production and great sounds. I'll be looking forward to "Songs for Psychos Pt 2"!

Eighteen varied tracks of mind-stimulating. soundscapes. Compositions ranging from the pop-like "Birth" to the gentle ambiences of "I Looked at the Shadow" & "Letting Go" to the noisey electronic darkness of "Sinelink". Lots going on here - piano, chimes, keyboards, organ, electronics, broken beats, psychotic voices....
